Our first week of classes is approaching fast! As you get your students ready to attend Bright Lights this summer, here are a few things to keep in mind.

When combined with the community matching funds provided through the Give to Lincoln Day event, your generosity will help to ensure that elementary and middle school students in the Lincoln area continue to explore beyond the typical classroom while learning new skills and maximizing their summer fun.

Classroom Assistant applications are still being accepted. Anyone who has completed 9th grade and up can apply. It’s a great way to pursue the goal of lifelong learning and support Bright Lights!
